Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invites 102 Express entry candidates who are proficient in the French language to apply for a provincial nomination for PR Visa in the latest provincial draw held on May 4.
Selected applicants may be eligible to immigrate to Canada through the OINP's Express Entry Francophone Skilled Worker Stream (FSSW). Applicants were required to have a profile in the Express Entry System with a Complete Ranking System (CRS) score between 458 and 467.
The FSSW is an enhanced component of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which means it is aligned with the Express Entry system. Applicants who received a notice of interest in this draw had to have an Express Entry profile created between May 4, 2020, and May 4, 2021.
The invited candidates have 45 days to apply online for their provincial nomination.
This is the third FSSW draw of the year and brings the total of Notifications of Interest (NOI) issued by this stream to 374. The first FSSW draw of this year took place on January 13 and the second took place on March 3.
Eligibility for OINP's FSSW stream
The very first step to applying for provincial nomination is to check whether you can meet the eligibility criteria of the immigration stream.
To fulfill the minimum eligibility for Ontario PNP, you must meet the requirements of the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) or Canadian Experience Class (CEC) to get a provincial nomination.
Under language proficiency, you have to get at least Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 7 in French and 6 in English. Among other requirements for nomination, Ontario requires you to have sufficient funds to support yourself and your family financially to live in the province.
